Top 10 Pantry Staples for Veg Home Cooks | Vegetarian Times

I’ve been on my vegetarian journey now for just about 9 months and I am still learning a lot about common items I should have in my pantry, from what spices are commonly used, the various grains and their nutritional value and making sure I get enough protein in my diet.

Recently I started training for a marathon, thanks to a dear friend, and have really come to realize the importance of adequate calorie intact from protein, carbohydrates and even sugar for energy.  Since I am not taking in meat protein having the levels needed for energy, muscle recovery and development is even more important from a fitness perspective.

This article is from Vegetarian Times, a magazine that I subscribe to and I hope you will find the information useful.
